It's too foggy, so everything sorta not happened o_o So here's a really neat video on youtube. (I swear it's not cpop. yah, really!)
You can watch all the other ones, but I think this is the best.
Some other comedians (which are all worse than nigahiga o:)
-shimmycocopuffsss (I swear I spelled that wrong) He's uh...Canadian? yayy! I think his funny ones are the one with the kids at daycare, 5 facts and cheese and rice.
-Happyslip that's really cool about her is that she acts out all her characters. I love Minnie and the aunt.
side note:Essay intros (and all the other parts) are hard to write! It doesn't help that I can't find my own mistakes, guess I shall continue bothering other people.
side side note: SHANA 24 STILL HAVEN'T COME OUT YET.
side side side note: made an icon from one of the h&c screencaps:

takemodo & hagu-chan. He's helping her with..hiccups?
The 2 all important themes in this story
Direct comparison between Rika's late husband and Mayama.
Finally thoughts from the 18 year old midget's point of view. It's quite sad actually (well, the entire series is sad.)
Bunch of random screencaps that I'm too lazy to explain. (I *really* need to go sleep)
The terrible incident
Morita vs Karou?
Absolute best (read saddest) ending ever. At least it explains the title!
side note: everything that I just wrote isn't suppose to make sense unless you watch the series. SO GO WATCH IT!
(sorry for it being sideways. Too lazy to open Photoshop and rotating it)
Gracie's side of the story seemed so fun, making those gel stickers from jello candle, haha I should try that sometimes!
Went to PMall today with Grace to buy grad presents, they were so expensive, especially the blue ones. Thank god there were enough, I think we took the whole stock haha! Now that we bought those, the hard part is coming up with the "personalizations". Poem? Portrait? Too bad both of us are terrible with those. *SIGGGGH*
And since we were at PMall, I decided to look for my grad dress (major discounts! from like...$100-200 in major malls to like $30-$80 here!). Tried on a few, they all looked pretty nice, amazign thing is that they actually fit! woahhhh. The changing room was too small, so I couldn't take pictures of the rest, but here's the one that I ended up buying:
(yeah I know it's side ways again...)
edit: PMall is a failure! In all those extremely asian stationary stores, there wasn't even one decent pencil case! Thank god for centerpoint mall and smart maple! (got a small strawberry-melon yugen fruz as a bonus)
to grace: YOU BETTER BRING ME ALONG TO SHOP FOR YOUR DRESS! AN EYE FOR AN EYE!

The teacher's really fussy about signatures, had to redo mine twice. It's near impossible to sign with a not-so-sharpened pencil in a tiny amount of space. (it still doesn't seem legible)
Spice and Wolf's ending was kinda disappointing. Too short! It needs another 12 episodes at least. I thought it would end when Lawrence finally escort her to the north, and maybe stay there cause they fell in love? But noooo! It ended like...miles away in some city with honey preserved peaches (they would taste sooo good). I just think it didn't tie up all the loose ends.
"Did you call our my name or hers?"
"No way! I called out yours because..."
Shigofumi's ending was better I guess. It was somewhat confusing, with Mika reappearing and stuff. Chiaki's visit to the mysterious women was somewhat explained. Fumi and Mika's past was somewhat explained, everything was kinda somewhat complete. I just hope Shakugan no Shana II's ending will give a clear cut.
it donates 20 grains of rice for every word you get right. It's a win-win situation, you increase your vocab (which I desperately need), and some hungry person gets food! yay

你的手却放不开 宁愿沒出息 求我別离开
你的手却放不开 宁愿沒出息 求我別离开
你的手却放不开 宁愿沒出息 求我別离开
yay for Jay Chou writing the melody and that Fang guy writing the lyrics. His lyrics always have some sorta poetic feel to it (I know nothing about poetry but oh well!)
okaaay. that is all! oh and go see gracidear's blog

This post will be dedicated to GRACE, because she simply does not believe me when I say it's still shivering.
-uh, what else is there? hail?
On a totally unrelated note, yay shigofumi and spice and wolf's ending got subbed o: If the downloading would just hurry up.

Math: 85 (oh the horror! when was I better at english than math! I better quadruple check my tests from now on...)
uhh..what else is there?
Science: 85 or 88? (IT DROPPED. DROPPPPPED! Maybe it's because...I have no idea. topics? tests? I think I screwed up everywhere haha)
Music: 88 (woah. I didn't expect to get this high, especially since I never practiced! Meh, lucky me?)
Drama: uh also 88? I seem to get a lot of that, why can't those be 2 marks higher!
Phy Ed: 78 Oh this is just very very sad. Would have gotten straight level 4s without this!
Overall average: 85.3 Think it went up...got like 83.something last term? Gosh this puts so much pressure on 3rd term. Have to continue the ascend!
Now back to studying *SIGH*
25 March 2008
But that is nothing compared to the other troubles that I'm faced with. REPORT CARDS ARE COMING. I think I better find a nice place to hide in the closet, or maybe arrange to live with the dust bunnies under my bed. No amount of excuses would get me out of this one, I bet all my grades are asian fail!
I think I should be studying instead of writing this...I'll go do that.

(absolutely the best song ever!)
A few things, I really think the piano looks better than Jay Chou himself (getting ready to be killed by his other fans). He just have such a serious face! He also looks weird playing guitar, piano for the win!
okay, back to listening to this song over and over again. (currently play count: 200+)

Finished the entire Euraka 7 series in a week, really tiring. I'll never try to stuff 50 whole episodes in another school week again. Overall, I think it's pretty good, has a nice mix of different genres (although I think it's a bit too much). If I had to compare it to something, it'd be NGE (neon genesis evangelion). There's so many similar scenes, eg: the scab corals to the test tube with Rei, the eureka being the new command cluster and threatening to destroy the world to the huge Rei at the end also threatening to destory the world, etc etc. The monologs in e7 isn't as good as Honey&Clover though. (Takemoto's are just amazing <_< everyone should watch it!). Now that I'm finally done watching it, time to read the spoilers in wikipedia!
To grace: YOUR TOE IS CONVENIENTLY LOCATED! SO SHUSH.

Anyways, TalhoxHolland ftw (Eureka 7)! Their scenes together are so sweet, especially Holland's attitude and Talho's reaction haha. The picture of them on the longboard was really cute, Talho's hair back then was so much nicer looking! Why did she have to cut it *sigh*.
voices don't travel diagonally?

Info on the anime
Just finished season 2, man were the last few episodes sad! So much shifting back and forth from Renton/Eureka's point of views, especially both of them saying "I want to see you". It also have such dramatic scenes for when they both jump out of the Gekko-Go. It's so omgIwanttopullmyhairout when Renton returns as soon as Eureka leaves, stupid dramas! haha.
yeah~ time to watch the remaining ones!

I hope I don't mess up tomorrow!

on a side note, he looked really funny (and a door bell) doing those gangster hand shakes haha!
on a side side note, here's something I drew/painted on sunday:
It's originally a 2 second sketch of my dad reading a book, but he left soon after (that's why he's handless). Started with 2H pencil, then added a wash of watercolour and finally retraced some parts with a4B pencil. I seem to really like watercolour+sketch haha.

section 1) SHIGOFUMI 10 IS JUST SOOOOO SADDDDDDDD. (repeat that a few hundred times)
here's a review (and spoiler)
It's just really really painful watching little Fumika all happy while the man was depressed. Another rather depressing scene(s) were the flashbacks from the man's childhood memory when he was about to choke little Fumika. (I have a major soft spot for flashbacks)
The ninja restaurant was pretty cool (no screencap of it). Too bad it's a bar, I'd like to eat there sometimes haha. I'm also quite envious of the man's drawing talents:
I'd totally get into Claude Watson with sketches of that level! *sigh*
section 2) stupid stupid adobe flash player! I know I usually say Adobe is my favourite software producer etc etc, but not this time. The flash player just won't work! I've tried (almost) everything, checking browser options, enabling access through firewall, reinstalling, installing older version and probably millions more. I think I'll just pray to computer god that it'll work soon.
section 3) did a quick sketch yesterday of some ancient Chinese clothing (main point: trying to learn how to draw fold haha). Here's a decent one:
just scanned, haven't clean it up at all. It *was* a complete picture until I messed up on the chest and ab part. Guess I shouldn't make too much modification in the future... Anyways, I'm glad that the inking went well, I really like what I did with the different nibs (0.3 and 0.5). Only obvious mistake would be the pattern on the lower draping part. I was planning to do that directly in Adobe Photoshop, except I only decided on that after inking the first petal. OH WELL!
